Jaipur Ajmer Udaipur a Exceptionally Awesum family trip, a much awaited family vacation after a long time,  was refreshing and a real treat to all garden and plant lovers!
Not only will you find amazingly beautiful garden designing but also exceptionally rare and scientifically cool or warm gardens. Sahelion Ki Baari, Sheesh Mahal , Palaces, Udaipur Palace, gardens, Jagdish temple, lake Fatehsagar Udaipur is Fantastically serene and vast. Palaces, bazaars, gardens and of course Pink everywhere, hence it is known as the pink city and the city of lakes! There is also a Vintage cars collection that is open for viewing for car lovers!
Must visit tourist spots, we selected a few that are really beautiful we were on a short trip. Full of folk and ethnic culture, thoroughly enjoyed the Puppet show and the traditional attire dressing up, clicked tons of photos and loved best was the Amber Palace, Amer Palace. Gardens, Flowers, and Art, culture, paintings, Artefacts, Jaipur Udaipur, Rajashthan is full of folk culture and we are back with loads of happy memories adding up to my gemstones collection, bandhini silk , and with a little sad memory of a missing earring purchased at Amer Road Jaipur Haat shop, have emailed at Jaipur Haat, as there was a simple negligence on the part of the packer who packed the necklace set with a single earring ...I hope they send my missing earring by courier as a gesture of so many years of sharing traditional jewelry and art heritage.
The Kings were just amazing and I am awestruck by the scientific processes involved in making these Amazingly beautiful gardens. Do take a guide at every place if you want to understand the history and real culture of Jaipur and Udaipur.

Sahelion Ki Baari Udaipur Rizwana Mundewadi
Mesmerizing rains all year round, as the queen loved rains so she had a garden that would keep raining water, water fountain, all year round without any electricity. Natural water fountains with mesmerizing rain dropping music.
The most beautiful part, there were sections in the Sahelion ki baari, for hot seasons and cold seasons.The queen sure was spoilt for choice!  each sector had tall trees and thick growth to keep cool during hot summers,,or low plants with open spaces to keep sun warmth during cold season.
Was awestruck with My Airavaat! he just seems to appear every place! White Marble elephant sculptures with trunks that poured beautiful sprays of water, beautiful water fountains with different pouts and different nozzles to give out natural water rain patterns.
Sentimental old nostalgic songs played at the Gulab Baug as we took the mini train joy ride in the vast palace garden.
A must visit for every plant garden lover, a real treat for a Gardener!
Meanwhile my garden is always taken care off by nature spirits, and this time with rains , excessive rains we are fully loaded with huge Allamanda flowers, chameli, mogra, roses, juhi jasmine, fire cracker, star cluster, peace lily, snow queen, red layered hibiscus and of course that yellow flower! I feel so sad to see these growing blooms that are huge and drooping over the container plants and they bear the heavy winds and rains and add up so much beauty to my garden, feeling really really blessed by the blessings of Mother Earth, the Universe has everything in abundance, you just have to tap this!

Growing Mogra Chameli from Cuttings Practical Guidelines with Photographs

Mogra Plant cuttings planted in a container
Cuttings are the easiest ways to grow some plants. Not all plants grow well from cuttings and I have found it difficult to grow many plants, especially roses, no luck for me with cuttings!Though we have had the best of roses and also quite some rare unique rose plants from other cities and exhibitions.
Beware in the garden! Hidden surprises in Garden!
Whenever you are working in the garden , do beware of unexpected surprises!
The Jai Juhi climber has taken well from cuttings.
Practical tips fro growing Jai Juhi Mogra from cuttings-
1) Never cut plant during winter or very hot afternoon in summers.
2) choose a healthy stem to cut , with more than two split stems.
3) I found that best time is just before rains.
4) See that the pot to be grown in has rich and firm soil. The soil has to be firm because other wise the birds pluck out the cuttings or they do not get good grip to grow well.
5) Reason is the stem has to be stuck in till the roots break from the base and then you see fresh lime green leaves on top.
6) do not disturb the plant cuttings for many weeks, by checking on them. Just take care to see that the stem is green and not changed colour to brown and that the stem is not rotting.

Roses survived even in heavy downpour of rain!

First stage after transplanting cuttings, leaves drop

leaves dropped but the stem is green means the cuttings are healthy
7) You keep some leaves on the stem when you take cuttings, the tiny leaves are great to make food for the baby plant cutting. As you will see large leaves will drop off in few days after transplantation of cuttings.
This is the most easiest way and I prefer not to add much feedings at this basic stage. What I like about this is that you can get cuttings from anyone for free and especially this plant photo here,  one is a very large sized button mogra plant that I got cuttings and planted them. The Jai Juhi climber with its  heavenly fragrance, with its climbing tendency I wanted to get another one from the large container plant so this worked for me! and especially Juhi climber grows flowers at end top tip of the climber hence the many plants the more loaded they will be!

Variegated Spider Lilly Plants Unique Leaves and Beautiful fragrant flowers

Spider Lily plants are very beautiful heavenly white and these unique leaves we had were like spider lily grass and grew into long strands emerging from centre. These variegated spider lily plants are grown form bulbs and require well draining soil.
Variegated Spider Lily Plant with bud

Variegated Spider Lily Plant flowers
Lily plants are grown from bulbs and require hardly any care. Of course save them from rats who eat up fleshy bulbs! And the caterpillars who gorge on leaves.
Apart from the ornamental beauty these variegated lily plants offer they also look very pretty with their unique designer leaves. There are white line in between the raw green leaves. It is as if an artist has made a single line on each and every leaf, God the most Awesum artist!
No special care required but I have killed a few (lol) so but here are some practical tips for growing variegated spider lily plants-
1) Indirect sunlight.
2) Well draining soil , very essential.
3) They love to grow in hanging baskets and small pots and the wide mouthed containers.
4) If the bulb seems to show signs of rot, that is yellowing of leaves,  it is better to remove the bulb and let it breathe, you will save the bulb! my practical tip!
5) Try to grow them in restricted pots and do not plant a single bulb into a very large container. Lesson learned- grow them in small pots and once they fill these pots, then shift them to one or two size larger pot . And finally if they have filled the whole container then you can grow them in very large containers.
6) Not deep but wide mouthed is the mantra for growing variegated spider lilly plants!
7) Too deep grown bulbs find it very difficult to give flowers. Bulbs are grown just a few inches below the top layer of soil.

In Feng Shuii this oregano plant is considered very auspicious. Not only for its unique rounded beautiful shaped leaves but also its fragrance refreshes the sinuses and clears the mind.

Button roses and special care for Button rose bushes and my Large sized Drooping Roses in rain!

While I have had lots and lots of Rose bushes of different varieties over the years and even special unique ones bought form exhibitions that have given us beautiful rose flowers, I had avoided the tiny button roses.  Size matters, and since the environment on our terrace garden his best suited for roses, we always would choose and grow large sized roses.

Button roses yellowing of leaves 

Button roses, tiny roses and small beautiful bunches of Joy!
Button roses require some what different care than the big rose bushes. They grow beautifully into bunches of flowers and look pretty like tiny buttons of pink!
Button roses are Awesum in fragrances and their raw fresh fragrance is out of this world! Of course my other roses also have fantastic fragrance and these are heightened in fresh rose buds opening in the early mornings, you must try smell  the roses  after sunrise, the experience will refresh your mind body and spirit!
So I added button roses, and then after the session of blooming the leaves started to yellow and drop off. There were so many flowers, it was not possible to trim the plant at this time. I realized that the plant was struggling to maintain health due to less exposure to sunlight. Trimming and dead heading of flowers is very important.
Then due to heavy rains most button rose flowers rotted and the whole plant was covered with soggy petals. Chances are, here the plant health can be compromised in such situations where the outside atmosphere is dark and cloudy.
Next time, I was prepared, my special tip! Cut some flowers( I avoided cutting flowers, but in special cases  it is essential, especially in rains the flower remains for longer time indoors) Cutting some flowers helped me to add some freshness indoors as well as save the remaining flowers on plant that grew healthy and stayed for  longer time.
Button Rose bushes care-
1) Button rose plants  will need indirect sunlight.
2) Egg shells work for all roses as great feedings.
3) They will grow stems that will spread into many tiny stems and load with many buds.
4) Dead heading is important after blooming as these tiny button roses dry off and they cover most of the plant preventing  the leaves from getting sunlight.

5) Button roses grow in plenty, large numbers in healthy plant and hence they require rich soil and well  sized pots.

Succulent Jade Feng Shui Wealth plant Jade Practical tips for Growing Jade Plants and the Feng Shuii Number symbolism in Money Plants

Jade Plants Garden Care Simplified 

Healthy Feng shuii Money luck Jade Plants
 Wealth plant in Feng Shui are special chosen plants that have been great activators of wealth in Feng Shuii. These plants have been selected by Feng Shuii Masters for their unique qualities and staying power and special characteristics that make them great feng Shuii wealth cures.
The beautiful jade! Green, fleshy, tiny ovular leaves that require less care and less watering and for their staying power in tough environmental conditions these are termed as strong feng shuii money luck plants.
I find it difficult to take acre since we have a open terrace garden and there is strong sunlight for most part of the day. While there is always blooming happiness in our garden with loads of colourful blooms(sunlight blessings! these special ones , succulents and cactuses have a tough time with me. While most other plants require plenty of watering and in summers even twice these succulents have to be shifted to shady areas and also it is difficult to avoid over watering.
For the many lost plants, again this time got tempted and added a pair of green jade plants. This time they have found a space in our window sill garden along side with the Brahma kamal plants. While I still long for seeing the Brahma kamal flowers, painted the pots with left over paints. Will write another post sharing tips for painting garden pots.
Jade are very lucky plants in Feng Shuii and they have to grown in pairs for activating the Feng Shuii wealth and prosperity sector.  There is immense value given to number symbolism in feng shuii and this also comes for growing plants. This is one aspect I always take care of, never grow many single plants in your garden. Try to add up as many pairs as possible especially in the feng shuii relationships sector of your garden, this si the south west of your garden. The energy of pairs! The feng shuii wealth sector, this falls in the south east of your garden,  also needs the energy of two, so grow these plants as pairs, and it would be good to have two similar pots also.
Feng Shuii symbolism of number Two, symbolism unision, of two energies, very auspicious. The luck and blessings from heaven and earth. The number two activates energy in any space in double.  The Yin and the Yang, the high and the low, the light and the dark, it brings harmony and luck in any space.
Care for growing Jade Plants-
1) Sunlight is essential for jade plants, indirect for at least some hours of the day.
2) Choose well draining soil for jade plants. The soil must be firm and well draining. .
3) Avoid over watering the jade as the leaves get soggy and rot.
4) Avoid under watering , as then the leaves start to drop.
5) Root rot is most common in jade plants with soggy water clogged soil.
6) Best tip- Turn the Jade plants every few weeks so that they grow uniformly.
I had seen a large Jade tree, that was really very beautiful, grown in soil on land. Of course the owner had special adding’s and feedings during growth stage for this one and once it gets comfortable, the Jade is an Awesum succulent that keeps growing!
Today we see soil less growing and this one works for succulents  well and also for those who cannot control over watering! like me!
Grow these Awesum ones and do share your experiences with this beautiful Feng Shuii wealth cure, money luck plant Jade!

Why Plants in Bedroom are Bad Feng Shuii Wealth sector in bedroom Feng Shuii

What to do if Feng Shuii wealth sector falls in bedroom? While the strongest wealth cures are green plants,we all love the Chinese Bamboo Goodluck plants that bring immense luck, we cannot use them in bedroom. Here, the feng shuii masters advise to avoid water,in any form. This affects relationships and health in the long run and must be avoided and bedroom Feng shuii needs to be well thought off carefully before using any feng shuii cures here. 
While we know that wealth sector is the most important it is also important to realize that feng shuii energy required in bedrooms needs to be more of Yin and soothing type. When people read feng shuii for wealth they immediately think of adding green growing plants as these are the best wealth cures in feng shuii. But Feng Shuii Masters advise to avoid plants in bedroom.
In Pairs!




how will you activate the most important sector of your life? 
Practical workable tips! Wealth sector in Feng shuii can be activated with actual coins, money,  the element metal. Then also the sweetest fruits oranges have great symbolism in Feng shuii and Orange trees loaded with fruits symbolize abundance and prosperity in that house. There are today so many artificial Orange trees, silk flowers,  gemstone trees, and Feng shui sculptures and paintings available as feng shuii cures that can be used effectively to activate wealth sector. 
There are so many ways to activate wealth and if the wealth sector falls in bedroom, this happens to be a tricky part to use feng shui cures for wealth. and you cannot place green plants you can have green paintings of leaves that symbolize wealth. Instead of having water for career and opportunities luck you can have gold coins paintings to activate this sector. 
Water in any form has to be avoided in bedroom in Feng Shuii. Masters advise to avoid plants as they have stagnant water and may also attract mosquitoes that affect health. then also water in bedroom attracts third party entry, in any form and this affects relationships between the couple. This third person need not be that the spouse is having an affair, it can be inlaws, it can be siblings or friends also who unknowingly keep advising you and this affects your relationship and peace of mind.
Do remember there is no replacement for hard sincere effort, for everything else there is feng shuii!
Bedroom feng shuii for wealth-
1) Two plants, the energy of pairs is important here. in any form, always put two artificial plants, two paintings of flowers or trees, two vases of flowers. 
2) Never put these paintings in the entrance door of bedroom. Even if these are green plant paintings or flowers paintings they will put undue pressure on the couple to perform better, and in perfection than the other.
3) If your south east sector  comes just above your bed wall,  you have hung paintings above your bed check that they do not have dried trees, wilted flowers, or three trees or flowers as subjects. Stormy seas, thunder storms, cloudy rains,  as backgrounds must be avoided in artworks in bedroom.
